Izintaba Game Farm Self Catering, Game Reserve & Bush Lodge Accommodation In Vaalwater

Situated on a private game farm, just 290km's north of OR Tambo International airport, outside of Vaalwater in the Malaria Free Waterberg Biosphere, Izintaba offers self catering accommodation in six luxury, fully equipped self-catering cottages. Sleeping between four and fourteen people Izintaba Lodges are perfect for groups of friends or family get togethers, intimate weddings, romantic bush getaways or just a well deserved weekend break. Izintaba Game Farm offers guests the freedom to enjoy the bush at their own pace either walking, mountain biking, fishing, birding or doing a game drive on our 1200ha private game reserve.

Izintaba (which means "a place in the mountains") is home to a wonderful selection of birds, all the general plains game from Giraffe to Impala and innumerable species of reptiles and insects. The area is blessed with a temperate climate all year round and is malaria free. Leave the city stress behind you and come and enjoy true peace and tranquillity in the Malaria free Waterberg bush.

At Izintaba we believe that a stay in the bush can be enjoyed in style and comfort. The thatched lodges are luxuriously furnished, very comfortable and overlook typical Waterberg bushveld. At the end of the day guests can relax on their patio and anticipate the magnificent sunset; make a wood fire in their private lapa, watch the incredible night sky and savour the heady scents and wild night sounds of the bushveld.

Zebra Cottage and Bushbuck Cottage:
Each lodge sleeps 4 people in 2 en-suite bedrooms, with an open-plan lounge, dining room and kitchen. Zebra lodge has a loft, which can sleep an additional 2 people.

Kudu Cottage:
A larger double story lodge, which sleeps 8 people in 4 en-suite bedrooms, with an open-plan lounge, dining room and kitchen. Own private plunge pool.

Giraffe Cottage:

Originally built as a home, Giraffe cottage has been converted into a spacious chalet with an open plan dining room, lounge and large kitchen that makes big family or friend get togethers comfortable and hassle free. Sleeps 10 people comfortably in 3 large bedrooms, one king, one double and one twin, with 4 beds in a spacious loft room, ideally suited for children. 2 full bathrooms, both with a shower and a bath.

Duiker Cottage:
Duiker Cottage will appeal to those guests who really want to experience the peace and tranquillity of being alone in the bush. Situated on a small rocky ridge, Duiker Cottage offers spectacular views of the surrounding bush and mountains from both the covered stoep and the open plan lounge, kitchen and dining room. Sleeps 4 in two bedrooms, one king and one twin, and one bathroom

Izintaba Lodge:
This exceptional bush home sleeps 10 in 3 luxurious en-suite bedrooms, 2 with king size beds, 1 twin and 2 large bedrooms, both twin, that share an interleading bathroom. Arrangements are flexible to suit each parties needs and extra beds are available for extra children. Bar with pool table and dartboard. Private swimming pool with thatched lapa for outdoor dining and braai area

All Lodges have the following:
Fully equipped for self catering with all crockery, utensils, bed linen and towels; 4-plate electric or gas stove with oven, microwave, fridge/freezer; fireplace in the lounge, shaded stoep (veranda); shaded carport and thatched lapa for outdoor dining and a private braai (BBQ) area.

Ready cooked meals can be ordered and delivered to your cottage on a daily basis. Please enquire about our menus.

Game Drive/ Bush Braai:
Join us for a 2-3 hour guided game drive, on an open landrover, followed by a 3-course dinner around a raging bonfire at our bush braai site situated in the middle of the bush under the African sky.

Mountain Biking:
A good network of farm roads enables the cyclist to enjoy riding in the bush. Tracks are either smooth or 4x4. There is always the possibility of coming face to face with a Zebra or a Giraffe around the next corner! Alternatively, the public roads outside the farm have very little traffic and offer longer rides.

Game Viewing:
Izintaba offers a diversity of habitats from open plains to rocky kloofs, to dams and seasonal rivers. This enables it to support a wide selection of wildlife. Guests can join us on an open vehicle for a guided game drive or drive in their own cars to look for game. Most roads are suitable for sedan cars and only a few require 4x4. A map of the farm is provided on arrival.

Izintaba supports a wide range of fauna and flora, and because we do not have any dangerous game, the best way to take it all in and enjoy the beautiful scenery is on foot. There are game paths and with over 25km of roads on the property one can enjoy long easy leisurely walks. For the more energetic, there is a marked walking trail leading down a scenic kloof, which has waterfalls and rock pools in the rainy season.

Discover the joy of bird watching with over 200 species recorded in the area. Check lists provided on request.

Cool off in the large swimming pool set amongst granite boulders.

Tree Spotting:
The flora is very diversified due to the variety of habitats. It's a wonderful hobby to walk about identifying trees and wild flowers with a good reference book.

Picnic Sites:
Pack a picnic and enjoy the surroundings at one of our picnic sites.

There are endless possibilities for the keen nature photographer, especially as guests have access to all areas of the property, including a few hides.

Bring your own rod or use one of our to test your patience against the barbell and bream that can be caught in our dam.

Fauna & Flora:
Over 40 mammal species are found on Izintaba game farm, large and small. These include giraffe, zebra, kudu, eland, waterbuck, blue wildebeest, gemsbok, bushbuck, blesbok, mountain reedbuck, klipspringer, duiker, steenbok, impala, bush pig and warthog. Predators such as leopard, brown hyaena, genet, civet, black-backed jackal, caracal, and African wildcat are occasionally sighted.

The elusive aardvark, pangolin and honey badger also occur on the farm. The Waterberg boasts over 200 bird species. These include raptors such as snake eagles, buzzards and secretary birds as well as numerous different kingfishers, hornbills and sunbirds. Innumerable species of insects and reptiles occur, including the endemic Giant plated lizard.

Izintaba offers a wide range of habitats and scenery. A perennial stream, which feeds a dam and provides an interesting wetland that attracts a variety of water birds, wide open savannah plains where game is easily viewed and dense bush and rocky outcrops. On the northeastern side of the property a densely vegetated horseshoe ridge looks out on an endless vista of mountains and valleys with no sign of civilization. It is down this ridge that a number of rocky ledges and beautiful seasonal waterfalls can be found.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
